Dancing FBI agent drops gun during backflip and shoots man in leg
An off-duty FBI agent accidentally shot a bystander in the leg when his gun fell from its holster as he cavorted on the dance-floor of a bar in Denver, Colorado, police said.
Video widely shared on Twitter shows the agent strutting his stuff and then performing a backflip.
The gun falls to the floor and, as the agent goes to grab it, fires a shot.
The fellow customer hit by the bullet was taken to hospital with a non-life-threatening injury.
It is unclear if the agent, who has not been named, will face charges or disciplinary action.
